broken-down-car

anonymous asked:

I don't know if anyone has ever mentioned this but it just occurred to me that in ASIB after the client with the broken down car faints in 221B Mrs. Hudson calls for Sherlock and John who are presumably in John's room. Later when we see Sherlock he is naked with a sheet around him. I don't think he got undressed after the client arrived so does that mean he was in John's room naked?!

Hi Nonny!

This actually has been discussed before by various bloggers. Some think he and John were there together, others think it was just Sherlock.

I say this time and again: I believe all Hudders was doing was just simply yelling over her shoulder in the general direction of their rooms. To me that’s no indication on whether they were both sharing a room; even if they both were home, John could be in his and Sherlock in his. Plus, John says he “was in Dublin yesterday”, leading me to suspect that John was actually on out of London when this scene occurs. I actually think Sherlock was probably talking to his MP!John (“do you just carry on talking while I’m away?”) and maybe Mrs Hudson mistook that for Sherlock’s regular chatting with John at the flat, since John probably rarely speaks while Sherlock is rambling.

Also:

John in ASiB during the client scene is quietly in the background. Not taking notes like he normally does (at least it doesn’t look like he is), and the client doesn’t even acknowledge John being there (the clients usually turn to talk to John when they’re telling a story). And look what he’s wearing:

The same outfit as the John that I think we have mostly agreed is from Sherlock’s mind palace in TSo3. Which he’s not wearing on supposedly the same day that the client came in to talk to them:

ARGUABLY, it could be John took off the cardigan, so I will concede that, but it’s not like John to just… shuck his cardigans. So I think Sherlock kept talking to the MP John about not going out to the case because it’s not a 7, and then decided that he would get real John to go for him.

Anyway, to me, Sherlock called John away from his Dublin trip (probably with a girlfriend) to go to the crime scene, since he was already out and Sherlock in a fit of stroppiness wanted to flirt with John in the same way he’s probably seen John’s girlfriends flirt with him, so texts John to get to Dublin, hops in the shower, takes a nap and then when John texts him he’s there, sets up a skype call. In a sheet, so John knows what he’s missing when he’s not there. Because Sherlock is a silly and jealous man.

Now the part that has always confused me was whether or not the client was actually there or if Sherlock was mind-palacing him… I’m thinking the latter simply because the client just… disappears when they go to Buckingham, so I think Sherlock took the details of the client’s case, then ran him out so he could video chat with John, but he recalls the client in his MP, for whatever reason (perhaps as that niggling voice that’s chastising him for not being nicer in informing the client about his heart condition?).

ANYWAY, that was a really convoluted way to answer your questions, but no, I think Sherlock was coming from his own room after a nap and maybe a shower. There was definitely some time that passed here.

It’s embarrassing how much I can relate on a casual basis to Noctis. He’ll complain about something like wanting to take a nap or being hungry and im just like “OMG that’s exactly how I’d complain!!”

I think it’s because he’s yknow, a Prince, but lacks the stereotypical princely etiquette we assumed he’d have (especially in the ffvs13 years when we knew very little about him). So seeing stuff like him fuck up his apartment with trash, eating cup noodles, pushing a broken down car and sleeping anywhere deemed acceptable like a college student during finals week (me) really makes me feel more connected to his character. I find him very relatable in these casual aspects.

I want a Mechanic!Luke Au where he finds you completely soaked, standing by your broken down car. After a lot of arguing/bickering (he is complicated in this Au of mine), he decided he can’t just let you alone in the rain. Something bad could happen to you. However, he has decided in his head that you are a posh girl, and that you will complain about his small, ancient house in the middle of nowhere. You don’t. 

I want grumpy, secluded, deep-down kind Luke. Who grumps out because he’s used to being alone, but cannot help the attraction he feels towards the girl he wrongly judged.

Hi you might've gotten this request already but could you please write a drabble about the reader being the Winchester's sibling and they call dean- 155, Reader replies with 99 and 190 (my car broke down genius) then 32, 76, 17 and 75. Thank you

(Idk how I like this one tbh…)

You leaned up against your broken down car, you pulled out your phone and dialed the first number that came to mind. Dean. You waited until the ringing stopped, but before you could speak, Dean spoke first. “Please don’t tell me you got arrested again.”

You rolled your eyes, “Fuck no.” You adjusted your footing. “My car broke down, genius.” You mumbled, upset that you couldn’t fix it yourself.

“So? Build a bridge and get over it. I didn’t teach you how to fix cars just so you could call me to pick you up.” You could hear Dean shuffling.

“Dean… It’s been a long day… I need you.” You whined, you could practically hear Dean’s eye roll.

Dean sighed, “Maybe you should at least try and fix it yourself.” You heard keys jingling on the other end.

“Please! Dean I rarely ask for help. I really, really, need your help.” You begged.

Dean sighed once again, “Okay, I’m coming, don’t worry. I’ll be there in a few.” And with that, Dean hung up. You got into your car to wait for him.

Emile Leray built a working motorbike from a broken down car to escape the African desert

‘I put myself in what one calls survival mode. I could not have gone back on foot – it was too far.’

A Frenchman has found fame over 20 years later after pulling off a remarkable escape from the Moroccan desert – by building a motorbike just using parts from his crashed car. His amazing escape from the barren terrain saw Mr Leray single handedly rebuild his Citreon into a makeshift motorbike, in a dramatic escape which has seen him dubbed the most ‘extreme’ mechanic in the world.

In 1993 Emile Leray, then a 43-year-old former electrician, decided to go on an adventure and drive his Citroen 2CV from the city of Tan Ta and cross the Moroccan desert.  However, not all went according to plan. After going off road Emile crashed his car and was left stranded in the middle of nowhere. Deciding that he wouldn’t make it out of the desert on foot, Emile decided to build a makeshift motorbike using parts from his now wrecked car.

He had enough supplies of food and water to last him around ten days. After carefully considering all the mechanical and physical hurdles he would have to get over, Emile starts work on his DIY motorbike, the next morning. He starts taking apart his Citroen, by removing the body, he used that as a shelter against the sandstorms. Working under the scorching sun in a shirt with short sleeves, he makes his own sleeves out of a pair of socks, and keeps working away on his ‘bike’.

His ingenious engineering saw him convert the car’s rear bumper into a rudimentary seat, shorten the chassis, and place the engine and gearbox in the middle to create a vehicle which somehow kept going long enough to transport him to safety.

Mr Leray, now 62, has kept the motorbike as a memento of his incredible escape from the Moroccan desert.Daniel Denis of 2CV magazine source

Alright, so I was in my office today arranging some things and filling out some paperwork and I get a text from my buddy saying his car’s broken down. And he then sends me the car emoji and the laughing emoji. Like why are you laughing? Your cars broken down. But I guess some people have a different sense of humor or I just don’t understand technology and emojis.

Serious question followers. Is it sexist to stop and help a woman in trouble (car broken down, flat, getting harassed, etc)? Or is it more sexist to ignore her, with her being a strong woman and all, and leave her to solve the problem on her own?
